Perhaps this belongs in General Writing or some other forum - but I'm about to begin the revision process of my first novel. I'm about 2.5 chapters away from completion. One of my college friends said that her creative writing teacher said that you should wait at least a month after finishing a work to revise it. Is this true? Part of me understands it since your subconscious will continue to analyze and remember things that you wrote and your mind's perception of the story will ferment. Therefore, when you revisit it, you may have a clearer view as to what the story should be at certain points. Any ideas and/or feedback on how some people proceed from here?
